Oaktree and Silver Point have also agreed to provide Interep with a new $25 million credit facility.

“The strategic decision Interep has chosen to take today establishes a solid financial footing for the company going forward,” said David Kennedy, the company’s and Chief . “With the agreement of the key bondholders, the company now has a plan that will reduce debt, provide the financial resources to grow, and put any uncertainty about Interep’s future behind us.”

The restructuring was pre-arranged and filed by Interep today with the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

I grateful to all of them for their patience and trust as the company has worked diligently over the past several months to address its balance sheet issues for the long-term. Today’s announcement marks an exciting new chapter for Interep, one that I’m confident will demonstrate how a well-capitalized and truly independent rep firm will be able to achieve the best possible results for everyone it serves.”
